Deep Honey

|Heliotropium arborescens|

I love to surround myself with things that smell good.  Smells that are relaxing yet exhilarating. When I come across a plant that has an exotically attractive scent it needs to be in my world!  I have a few favorites and one such favorite is the seductively pleasant scent of Heliotropium arborescens commonly known as Heliotrope.  It's a shrub from South America that produces tiny clusters of violet, blue, or white flowers that produce a delicately rich scent of warm vanilla with the slightest hint of cinnamon. I refer to this scent as deep honey.  It usually gives off its intoxicating perfume in the brightness of the morning or the languid light of a late afternoon.  Find this plant.  Bring it into your world.  Let the allure of its scent enthrall you.
